Reply Rebecca M September 12, 2019 I started IF & went a little keto. Not strict because I add quinoa to my meal preps. But I gave up sugar & carbs. I eat them every now & then. I lost 50lbs & my anxiety is gone. I don’t crash anymore. It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done.

Reply Strothy2 September 13, 2019 all the junkies here are like "lol I've doing this for years :D" Reply Childesinthe V. September 13, 2019 Guess I've been inadvertently doing it for a few years now. On days when I'm on my own schedule and not particularly active physically it's a snack around mid-afternoon and a late evening full meal. It's just because that's usually when I'm in the mood to prepare something and eat it, not angling for particular health/weight benefits, both were OK before I started doing it and still are. Reply steven 98 September 13, 2019 Dr. Mike look so hot af 😘 Reply Hajira Ali September 14, 2019 Wowwwww doctor Mike you are so sweet thankoo so much Reply lea lea September 14, 2019 TOO CUTE Reply ACDC Fan September 14, 2019 I dont eat at dinner, and for breakfast is 1 peanut butter sandwich and 2 eggs, and lunch is either a piece of Chicken or a Hamburger. I'm still ok after a 3 weeks of doing that. Reply Lalarukh Shinwari September 14, 2019 Can we drink during fasting hours? Reply Jussi September 15, 2019 16:8 made me have mad cravings and I ate a lot of sugar, OMAD made me hallucinate, 5:2 is amazing for me. Find what works for you! Reply Josephine Josie September 17, 2019 I like that video about diet,if I know other people have different style diets Reply Lisa Molusis September 17, 2019 i will say, that for most of my adult life, for at least 30 years, i have only eaten one meal a day– dinner and two cups of coffee in the morning. people used to say i was hurting my body, but i was always healthy,, so i knew it was BS. i ate primarily whole foods, plant based diet (love salads, no cheeze and watch the dressing) with limited amounts of animal protein. and i was always slim 5' 4" between 115 – 120. i'm trying to return to that model so, i think, this is a really great way to eat. the problem comes when you share a house with other people and what's in the pantry works against your will power– which is very real. sometime the craving for something salty, crunchy or sweet can derail your efforts. but i would say that if you can get past them initially, you can get to the point (maybe a few days to a week) where your body will be used to the new way you eat and adapt to it. with any change in diet it's the first 3 days that are maddening. haha. good luck to everyone and be strong. 😉 Reply Cris Perez September 18, 2019 Dr. Mike, as a female, my experience is that fasting, particularly intermittent fasting wreaked havoc on my hormones. It’s taken me one full year to finally regulate my hormones because I chose to do it naturally. It was a terrible experience, it’s definitely not for everyone, particularly women.!!! Please look into it in depth if you’re a woman. Reply michelle brooke September 18, 2019 Could you please tell us where you got this research? There are so many people who claim IF only works because it helps you eat less calories, which is true, but that’s not the only thing. Reply Dave Thompson September 18, 2019 mom and I do it to keep from the proverbial grazing… I do a 10am – 6pm and mum does 11am – 7pm… she's lost nearly 50 lbs over the last year and no longer has to harpoon insulin. I just started, lost 4 lbs, and my blood glucose is dropping a little. yay. Reply Wyatt Branham September 19, 2019 Well fasting isn't meant to be long term anyway. It wouldn't be fasting if that's how you normally eat. Reply Jismol Sanish September 19, 2019 I m going to start from today Reply Jismol Sanish September 19, 2019 Can I follow egg diet of 900cals during intermittent fasting? Reply Mai Le September 19, 2019 I skip meals so often due to work and study, I'm practically fasting without realising 😅😅 Reply Gl Gl September 20, 2019 First of all I didn't hear your bee whoop so I feel slited. Reply Joonha Shcal September 21, 2019 Please do a video on keto rash (prurigo pigmentosa). I haven't seen a major YouTuber do a video about it. Please inform people about this because too many start keto wrong and then freak out when they get the rash, like I did.

Been trying 16/8 and noticed I'm more flatulent than I was before. Fasting before bed as I would over eat right before sleeping. Reply Grace Tan September 25, 2019 Is it ok for doing intermittent fasting 16:8 while trying to conceive? Reply Laila Schneider September 25, 2019 I never eat after 9 pm and I don't eat breakfast before school (I'm eating again at 2 pm) but if I don't eat at 2 pm, then my blood sugar is rushing down and I'm forced to eat/drink (diabetic type 1). I'm on a diet since 4 months and I already lost 5 kg (I'm not overweight, I just want to take down some weight, eat healthy and build up some muscles after that) but I'm so stressed out, because I often have school in the afternoon and I don't eat in school. Eating the right meals is so hard, so I am looking for a way that I don't have to eat during the day. Is anyone a type 1 diabetic and has some experience with fasting? Reply Usoppn Booows September 25, 2019 Muslim did it first Reply BusinessSquid 95 September 25, 2019 I never eat breakfast but I’m still a chub lord Reply nafida cobra jessy September 26, 2019 I always fasting 20 hours a day Reply nafida cobra jessy September 26, 2019 I eat twice a day , no snacks full meal only , no sugar no salt, only Himalayas pink salt , home made food lotsssss of fruits lotsssss veggies fish , organic chicken and red meat Reply Bethany Bordner September 27, 2019 How does this affect muscle growth? Im shipping out to basic training for the Army in January and I’m trying to loose fat while also gaining muscle. I’m working out daily and eating around 900 to 1000 calories a day but I’m doing the eating every 3 hours diet and I’ve lost about 7 pounds in the past month. Should I keep with this or try fasting?

Reply Create And Adorn September 30, 2019 We do know the long term effects – look at the Indian culture – I spend a month in India each year for work & quickly adapt to only eating at 3PM & again at 10PM – sleeping from 2am -10am because this is how the family I stay with eats everyday & I always feel amazing after the first 3 days – then after I come home, I try to stay on it but lose it after a week or so Reply Radek Mojžíš September 30, 2019 actually the mental clarity im getting on the day 2 and 3 of not eating is insane. i feel like i have reflexes of spiderman (when i track my progress in this game called osu! most of my best scoreswere set on months where i did several 2-3 day fasts in a row). my head is also much clearer and i can focus on maths and programming much more easily. the fact that it makes you lose weight is just a bonus for me at this point. it also makes you enjoy your meals way more when you do actually eat Reply Grace Roeder October 1, 2019 CALL ME!! I 😘 Reply Eagle Flyer October 1, 2019 Can you help me if so I’m in school and I have to eat at 6:40 am and around 11:30 am and I get out of school at 4:00 pm, so I can focus. What time should I eat after school. I need to lose weight and I am 13 so don’t give me some extreme answers like 20/4 hours. I want to start intermittent fasting. If someone can help me out please answer I want to get skinny and I am gonna try my hardest. Reply TheyCalledMeT October 1, 2019 it's called breakfast because you break fasting Reply Bruce Hearn October 1, 2019 I retired 31 December, 2015. I weighed 270 pounds, give or take (6' tall). Since then, I significantly reduced crappy carb intake. I began time-restricted eating. Breakfast consists of half-a-pot of coffee, neat. I can usually count on one hand the number of sugared soft drinks I drink in a year. Water, unsweetened tea and neat coffee are my drinks of choice. I'm down to 230 pounds and have every intent to continue losing weight. My perfect weight is 165 pounds but I think that unlikely at 62 years of age. I'd be overjoyed to attain 190 pounds. Three more years and I should be there. My diet isn't the best and I don't exercise nearly enough but I hope I can get off of diabetes and blood pressure control meds. Reply Ryan Alexander October 1, 2019 Intermittent fasting isnt eating less calories. Its eating your required calories for whatever goals you have in a fixed window. Reply sgonged October 2, 2019 I just skip 1 meal a day…pick a meal and skip. Reply leah Renee October 2, 2019 Eat for 8 hours and starve for 16?

Reply akhi nur October 5, 2019 Very good Reply Jorge Hidalgo October 5, 2019 I love fasting best thing ever. Amazing feeling. and keep me in good shape. Reply Jer Lemieux October 5, 2019 In the beginning of the video you stated that IF isn’t a new thing and has been a reality since the beginning of ages, then at 4 minutes you went on to say we don’t know of any long term side effects or effectiveness in the diet. That kind of threw me off. The way I see it is since the literal beginning of time humans bodies were only meant for IF, we are meant to be hunter gatherers going days between meals, our bodies have not been in their prime because of the ease of access and convenience of food being everywhere. I can’t see IF ever being detrimental to our bodies. Correct me if I’m wrong… I’m sure certain health problems like diabetes can’t sustain an IF diet, but if we were on IF since birth I doubt diabetes would even exist unless there was some form of pancreatic damage. Reply Sakunika Ganegedara October 6, 2019 Thank you!!! I was waiting for someone professional enough to discuss this topic!!!! Reply Forever Reminiscing October 6, 2019 What if your skinny? Reply Kyria Fisher October 6, 2019 thank you for the info! this video helped me plan my own. watch my week long IF experience and tell me how I did! Reply Alia Ris October 7, 2019 I do circadian fasting, which kinda reversed from common IF, since I just skip dinner. I don't really aim for weight loss, but more of a better balance on hormones and insulin, as well as fixing my insomnia. So far, it's a wonder . I don't feel midday fatigue anymore, and I could sleep normally — albeit a lil bit earlier, and it has been undisturbed at all. I stop my craving, which usually happen in late afternoon, by drinking coffee and a lot of water, and stop seeing any foodporn. It's not for everyone, I understand. There has been some people that also do extreme fasting for a couple days in a week, like 24 or even 72 hours of no meal. Imo, I won't try it, since it's a bit bordering to eating disorder, and being someone with body dysmorphia, it could do more harm for me. Eat healthy doesn't mean you have to punish yourself. Reply Lilinass Melinass October 7, 2019 No need to review anything where ever I watch things about IF I keep saying ,Fasting is present since thousands years and one of the basic rules of ISLAM is to fast from dawn to dusk and then you free to eat and drink Reply Maria Maria October 7, 2019 Done 16/8 and lost 2 kilos in the first 4 days! I've been on keto and it made me "hangry" I just yo-yo back and forth to my weight, I was 75kg now 70.5kg in 2 weeks. I feel good, not sluggish. Planning to do a 24-hr every other day, for a week. ❤️ Reply Mukul Rawat October 8, 2019 Lol…. In Hinduism we do fasting from thousand of years… No doubt out saints n sages got the knowledge of this concept millenials before the doctors these days.. Reply Kayn The Cosmic shadow October 9, 2019 Bruh we muslims been doing this for a month each year lmao but for us we aren’t allowed to drink as well Reply Brandon Swink October 10, 2019 3:36:Side Effects: Yes you will experience side effects, that’s just within the first couple weeks of fasting though. That’s your body cleansing, actually fully detoxing and that’s why people will experience those symptoms. Because of all the bullshit we have put into our bodies and how frequently we have been eating over the last how ever many years. Your body when fasting is changing into a whole new mechanism. From using glucose for fuel to using ketones for fuel, a much healthier fuel source that provides more energy than glucose. Once you become fast adapted you will only experience those same symptoms if you consume junk again. What you put in is what you’ll get out. Reply SAVAGE ONE October 10, 2019 What's wrong with all these Thots in the comment section, it's pretty disrespectful when someone is trying hard to give you some great information and all you can concentrate on is his shirt or glasses ! Reply Three Jewels October 10, 2019 Pork shill. Reply Mr Shelby October 11, 2019 Man. Really honest. Loved it. Reply Chris Nero October 11, 2019 I've been doing IF since February and I've lost alot of weight like 60 pounds in 8 months. I also work out 6 days a week during that period of time as well. This diet is one of the hardest to maintain in the beginning stages because as someone who has always been obese and has had struggles with my diet this puts a shock on your body. Kind of makes you feel as though you are a drug addict. But the benefits are amazing I feel better less cloudy thoughts and overall more energy. Some of the downfalls he speaks of are true I do have headaches from time to time. Also have some really bad cravings that I give into sometimes as well. Also forgot to mention that I dont just throw food in my mouth for 8 hour window either I eat one big meal ranging from 1000-1700 calories then call it an evening. So if you are eating more then three meals worth of calories in the 8 hour window might give you different results.

This video is misleading. IF is based on a research for which Dr. Ohsumi won a Nobel prize in physiology, it's is not a trend. You are doing a disservice to all those people who are in urgent need of becoming more responsible with their health and way of life (not a diet.) Reply Belly Fat October 15, 2019 Intermittent fasting is not just a trend but a life changing experience. Reply Jocelyn Paz October 15, 2019 I never ate breakfeast so… first meal everyday was after 1 pm Reply Puvanes wari October 15, 2019 Valery Mamonov has been experimenting with fasting for over 40 years now. He is into '70s but has the energy of a 30-year old man. He has written the book " Control for Life Extension: A Personalized Holistic Approach" . Available at Amazon.com i first got a copy of this book in 2002 and I must say this is my health encyclopedia.
